Hiscox Authors Series for Entrepreneurs offers resources for startups and small business owners

New program features Authors of The Accidental Entrepreneur: The 50 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me About Starting a Business and Leap! 101 Ways to Grow Your Business

April 17, 2012NEW YORK – Hiscox, the first insurer offering U.S. small businesses the ability to obtain quotes and buy small business insurance direct, online and in real-time, announced today the launch of the Hiscox Authors Series for Entrepreneurs. This series is a new resource for entrepreneurs and small business owners looking to grow their businesses. 

The Hiscox Authors Series for Entrepreneurs will provide creative content, tips and advice from popular authors who are themselves entrepreneurs. Featured experts include Susan Urquhart-Brown, author of The Accidental Entrepreneur: The 50 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me About Starting a Business, and Stephanie Chandler, author of Leap! 101 Ways to Grow Your Business

Original content from the Hiscox Authors Series for Entrepreneurs will be available through social media channels, including the Hiscox Small Business blog, Facebook and Twitter profiles. Entrepreneurs and small business owners can also join a free live Twitter chat and Webinar with the participating authors in April and May, respectively. 

“We’re committed to providing innovative solutions to small businesses through unique content that benefits them, including our successful web series, Leap Year,” said Kevin Kerridge, small business insurance expert at Hiscox. “The ability to educate and truly add value to small businesses is a core part of our business model and company DNA, and we’re honored to be working with such high caliber experts.” 

“It takes passion, tremendous drive and perseverance to start and build a business. Those qualities, plus a bit of guidance through practical tools and strategies, can help entrepreneurs reach their goals,” said Urquhart-Brown, who in addition to being an author runs her own career and business consultancy, CareerSteps123. “I look forward to working with Hiscox and using the Authors Series platform to share important messages from The Accidental Entrepreneur, such as that entrepreneurs should not make the mistake of doing everything themselves and should remember to ask for help.” 

Stephanie Chandler added, “I am honored to be part of this exciting new initiative from Hiscox. My hope is that by sharing resources for entrepreneurs, we can empower small businesses to thrive and continue to lead us all into better economic times. Small businesses have a powerful impact on the economy, and we need to continue working together to create a brighter future.” Chandler is also the founder and CEO of Authority Publishing, which specializes in custom publishing for non-fiction books, and BusinessInfoGuide.com, a directory of resources for entrepreneurs.
